Following the success of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast, a new comedy series and exclusive subscriber-only content will be available to fans on nearly all podcast platforms.
Scott Aukerman and Acast are partnering to launch Comedy Bang! Bang! World, a range of premium podcast programming available to comedy fans everywhere.
From 1 October, subscribers will be able to sign up at ComedyBangBangWorld.com to get exclusive access to new comedy series, ad-free listening, full back-catalogue episodes of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast and other shows.
The programming will be powered by Acast, which will enable fans to listen to the subscriber-only content across Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon, Overcast, Pocket Casts, and many more platforms.
“I’m excited to finally dip my toe into making podcasts, which were invented about three years ago, as far as the public knows,” said Aukerman, who also co-founded Earwolf — the network that will continue to distribute recent, ad-supported episodes of the Comedy Bang! Bang! podcast free for listeners.
Rebecca Steinberg, Director of Development at Acast added: “At Acast, we’re driven to help all creators find their audience, and deepen their relationship with listeners and fans — and that means making their content available widely, as part of the open podcasting ecosystem.
“This partnership gives us the opportunity to bring Comedy Bang! Bang!’s incredible podcasts to more people than ever before.”
Comedy Bang! Bang! World is co-founded by Brett Morris, who will be executive producing the programming along with Aukerman. Morris previously led production at Earwolf.
Subscribers can choose from two different pricing tiers with various benefits. Comedy Bang! Bang! World will continue to expand with new series, benefits and content, featuring established and up-and-coming comedic talent.
